Luisa and I are still taking walks, although not every day. And as summer heats up, our walks are in the evening, when things start to cool down.
We were maybe ten minutes into our walk when I spotted a tiny dog walking along the sidewalk on the other side of the street. He seemed to have purpose, like he was on a walk with a person. But, there was no person to be seen.
I looked around, but no one seemed to be in the vicinity except for us.
So, I pointed him out to Luisa.
We crossed the street, and Luisa called out to him. He kept strolling along. It took us a good three to four houses before we caught up with him.
Luckily, he had on a collar. The front read "Ugly Boy". The back had a phone number.
I dialed the number. I got voicemail. I wasn't surprised. When I get phone calls from an unknown number, I don't answer them either. So, I left a quick message.
Ugly Boy got away from Luisa (she was holding him by the collar and he slipped away), but I needed that number again. Because while I knew the call would be ignored, I figured a text wouldn't be.
Once we grabbed the dog again, I texted, "Are you missing a dog?" and then I added where we were.
Not two minutes later, the phone rang and two ladies emerged from a house two houses in front of us.
In front of us.
Ugly Boy was headed home when we waylaid him.
Ah well. They told us that Ugly Boy has escaped before. Someone left a door open. I just wonder if he's escaped more than they realize, only he then returns.
